happened before these bills. >> we saw the leaders of the republican party really attempt to be the george wallaces of the 21st century. they engaged in tyranny. they passed to suppress the vote vote. we've had the highest per capita voting rate in any state in the union in the last few elections and they know that the south is changing. they're trying to stop what i call the thirdly construction. they passed a voter document that is unnecessary because we already had signature access, and we have not had any evidence of voter fraud. their claim of fraud is fraudulent itself. this is an tempt to stop progress and it's so wrong and we're going to find it with everything we have. >> john: we've seen admissions like this across the country that tend to target minorities poor folks or seniors and in this case it's targeting college students. there has been a lot of public support for voteer i.d. laws. now my mom and brother they don't agree but is there that much support for this? >> i do not believe that is true. when voters find out this is about politicians who are manipulating the rules t
to be the new george wallace. he's chosen to go in a backward direction rather than follow his previous moderation as mayor of charlotte. he has gone in a backward direction, and that is not going to work. it's very exciting that people are willing to come forward. once again you see young people in the spring, if you can't do something as a college student if you you can't take a stand as a young person you never will. this struggle is a constant one. we don't want north carolina to be worse than mississippi and alabama. the voting rights in north carolina is more restrictive than alabama and south carolina. people are embarrassed, and they're taking shots at plaque people, women and minorities and lib, but they're also hitting poor working people and poor white southerners many of whom are republicans. we're getting a lot of support in this new movement. >> michael: it's worth pointing out, the mayor of charlotte was named labor secretary. you know, those are a black mayor in the south all these years on going to washington to be in the president's cabinet. you talked about the popula
to the will of the people. because the people who elected george wallace governor of alabama we peteedly in the early 1960's, if we asked them do you think your children shut go to school with black children? do you think black children should be able to drink out of the same water fountain as white people. they would have said no to everything. we noted that. >> bill: you could full phi the founding fathers by saying most of them were slave holders. you don't nullify people because of historical astros cities. you don't do that. >> i think you can use the will of the people in almost every case but not in some cases this is one of those cases. can i give you the third example real quick? >> bill: i don't want to you outkick your coverage here to use a sports met for. let me zero in on the first one you said you and i can disagree on the constitutionality of the federal government imposing a differential standard of message. goldberg ceases it one way. o'reilly sees it the other way. we both have valid points, all right? they are both based on civil law. my thing is equal protection. you can't have the fede
're not worth making, but you just ask the question, okay, was george wallace in the greatest president? was right eisenhower the greatest president? we could have this argument, and it would not really change the history of anything. it would, perhaps not change the way we think about it. i teach writing at the university of texas as well as history. one of the things i tell my princess historians is that every work of history is a combination of story and argument, of narrative and pieces. and i have to say that the longer write the more i emphasize the narrative, the more i emphasize the story. and the less attention i give to the argument. some of this has to do with what i alluded to a moment ago which is arguments come and go. you know the arguments. eisenhower, when he was in office was considered to be this bill guy he really did not have a sense of all was going on, and then there was this wave of eisenhower revisionists and every he was then and beyond everything that happened in the 1920's. i don't know that we ended up knowing more about eisenhower. sometimes we know more ab
this front of school doors, they were democrats. george wallace was a democrat. orville -- [inaudible] of little rock was a democrat. and not all of them became republicans once the civil rights act got passed. so the idea that republicans are racist is not fair. you look at the his right-of-way the democratic -- history of the democratic party, this is a party that voted against the 13th, 14th amendment and basically every civil rights legislation passed in the 9th century -- 19th century, the republican party was against it. the first successful presidential candidate was a guy named abraham lincoln. republicans have a major story to tell. but often people don't want to hear about it, they believe the republicans are racist, and they shut their minds to it. this is not your grandfather's republican party. republicans are very sensitive about reaching out to blacks and hispanics. but they often con desend. they often say things like, oh, i know somebody who picked fruit with cesar chavez. i'm not looking for a fishing buddy, i'm looking for somebody who's going to advance policies th
. i was standing on the capitol steps where just a few years before i stood before george wallace with a petition of the montgomery march. he slammed the door in our face. but god opened another door. and he had a young man walk-in who i heard -- martin's voice andng, deal with character not color. .eal with integrity, not race when we come here today, god is calling us. i am so proud of what you are doing. i do not know if i will ever be back here again. it will know how long i amut whatever time it is ready.

for history. he already looks like george wallace saying segregation now segregation forever. younger americans are the ones that the party needs to relate to. so this is a problem that the party has because there's still a constituency among them, the tony perkins who asked instead of donating to the rnc to donate to his organization. it's a self-serving argument. thaw they have a small base but it's still one that gets very aingry about gay people having equal rights. >> he mentioned core principles. core principles if you go to-to-back to lincoln, low taxes, national security, defining marriage bun way oar the other is not a core principle of the republican party. that's not what we should be all about. it's not the headline about what the rnc meeting should be. why is the gdp crawling? why is unemployment so high? that's what americans want to hear about. if you look at the poles, that's what they care about, the social issues are not ones we we're going to win on long term. mie believe is they are state issues. but be that as it may, those are not the headline point we should put
they want to be known as the george wallaces of the 21st century. it is kind of like the white southern strategy being revisited with the 21st century twist. had started out at the beginning of the legislative -- they cut 500,000 people from medicaid, health care. decided not to take it. 165,000 people that cut out of unemployment. and now they are attacking voting rights. they also decided that they want to go after labor rights, want to put impediments in the constitution for labor rights. cut 900,000 working people's earned income taxes, effectively raising tax owes the poor. so they could give a tax cut to 23 wealthy families. now they are going after voting rights. voter i.d. that they have passed in the house is more restrictive than south carolina and alabama. they will not allow people with impediments to still be able to vote as south carolina does. and they have denied private school i.d.s as a form of i.d. in this state. so schools like wake forest or duke university students or shell students, they are -- would be denied. 89,000 private school students in this state. and thi
by a effigy of his own likeness. the city had its own george wallace who channelled the resentment ofs of white ethnic boston for campaigns of the school board, city council, members of congress, slogan, you know where i-stand. in 1989, a young doctor was driving home through roxbury with his pregnant wife and a black man stopped them at gunpoint ask shot them. mother and baby were killed and the husband, charles stewart, barely survived. his story terrified the city. if something so awful and random could happen to charles and carol stewart, well, was anyone safe? politicians demanded answers and police arrest ad suspect. but there was a catch. charles stewart had made it up. all of it. he was actual lie the one that killed his wife. he just figured the easiest way to get away with it was to say black guy had done it. for a while everyone with any power believed him. you could feel generations of abject frustration in the black community in boston boiling over. >> they showed to us an insidious form of racism by being so easily convinced that a black man would indiscriminately attack
